Setting Sun Lace shawl

Introduction

A shawl to make for someone who is in need of warmth, love and hugs. This shawl was

designed for my mother-in-law who recently had to say farewell to her partner.

I designed this shawl as I think most prayer shawls are too thick and too dull because they are

mostly one stitch of a small pattern repeat. I wanted to create something elegant but easy to

make.

Crochet this showl for someone in need!

Materials List

2 balls of sock yarn or 450 yards

Crochet hook 4.5 mm

Finished Size

Approximately 100 cm wide (shawlette size)

Gauge

Any yarn, any gauge

Notes

Special Stitches

V stitch: (dc, ch1, dc) in same st

5sh(ell): dc 5 times into same st

7sh(ell): dc 7 times into same st

Point: 2dc, ch3, 2dc

Notes

This is an any yarn any gauge pattern. The size of the shawl will be altered by your choice of yarn and choice of hook

size. I crochet very loose so I always downsize my hook size to get a certain stated gauge.

You start off with making a basic triangular shawl, but as you add the border, it will grow into a bit of a batwing shaped

shawl. Increases are made at the sides and at the point. Some of the pattern notes for the border will be very extensive,

but you only need to remember this: in the V-stitches there will be shells made en vice versa and in a (dc, ch1, dc) group

there will only be (dc, ch1, dc) Group
